Marko Ahtisaari working on revolutionary phone, spending 1/3 of time on Nokia Tablet!

A slew of tips coming in this morning about Nokia upcoming phones and tablets:

Muerte translated a few quick points:

Yet another very interesting article in Finnish newspaper “Kauppalehti Optio”.

“Nokia working on a revolutionary phone”

http://www.kauppalehti.fi/5/i/talous/uutiset/etusivu/uutinen.jsp?oid=201203131813

This link provides only a shortened version of the chargeable article, but I’ll translate a few points:

- Marko Ahtisaari (and his team) is working on their next breakthrough that will revolutionize your phone’s user experience

- When the new phone is ready, the user does not need to bend down and push their finger on the screen. (Remember Nokia and their Augmentet reality glasses concept?)

- Apple’s iPhone, Ahtisaari characterized as five years old innovation. The iPhone and iPad are, in his opinion, like a poorly designed home. The road from the kitchen into the dining room is always going through the front door

- Android and Symbian, he says, are like dollhouses. You can pick your own favourite furniture, and use only them.

- He says Windows Phone’s user experience is more natural

Exciting stuff. Even more of an evolution than N9 and Swipe?!

This is from the same article, where Marko Ahtisaari confirms that Nokia is working on a tablet, and Marko spends 1/3 of his own working hours on this project. He doesn’t tell anything about the schedule though.
